Killer whale FPC[edit]

Hello. A Featured Picture Candidate you commented on, Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Killer whale mother and calf, is now in the section for "Older nominations requiring additional input from voters." Contributors have tried to improve it after you commented, and your opinion is welcome as to which, if any, of the available versions deserves promotion. I am sending this message to everyone who participated in the FPC. Thanks! Kla'quot 06:26, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Article to be deleted/Vandalism[edit]

Rocketsnail[edit]

It was mean of you to delete Rocketsnail Games page. You have no heart. he is not a cp mod. it was a company aquisitioned by Disney. Would you delete Disney? no. Then why delete rocketsnail?????Flapperistic (talk) 16:54, 21 February 2009 (UTC) The article "Roke" is an inappropriate article.

Hi Chris. I'm back from my wikibreak but I think that I'm about to go on a new due to more unpleasant events which make me dislike wikipedia. Do you think that what's been said here[1] is rational? Thanks. Miskin 13:55, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Remove the Forced Redirect[edit]

You should probably remove the forced redirect on "Eric Dill." He is no longer with The Click Five and is pursuing a solo career. Various news articles talk about this, such as: http://www.chartattack.com/damn/2007/04/0504.cfm http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1558026/20070425/lil_kim.jhtml http://theedge.bostonherald.com/musicNews/view.bg?articleid=196306 -- John

Mark 48 torpedo[edit]

I just went a double checked, and I think the images your composite was made from were actually taken by Australians, not US navy. Since they're aussie, crown copyright applies, and it's non-free. We can probably make a case for fair use, but it's gonna have to come off the commons and should probably be delisted as an FPC. Night Gyr (talk/Oy) 02:21, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Forced Redirect - Please Remove for Eric Dill[edit]

Eric Dill is now the "former" lead singer of The Click Five, and therefore needs his own Wikipedia listing. This is not possible, however, because it is set on forced redirect. Can you please remove the forced redirect on this listing? -- John | 11:48, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale[edit]

Hi Chris, I've seen that you've uploaded the Image:ShipPamirFalklandIslandStamp.jpg under a fair use license. Could you please add a rationale for the license? As Wikipedia has several free images, I'm not sure what to base it on. Thanks, Ibn Battuta 17:36, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Hoppla, gerade erst gemerkt, daß Du deutsch sprichst. Egal, antworte, wie Du magst. ^^ --Ibn Battuta 17:37, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
Achso, ja, auf das Datum hatte ich noch gar nicht geschaut. Da das Bild neu im Artikel auftauchte, dachte ich, es sei neuer... Würde es Dir etwas ausmachen, wenn ich das Bild zur Löschung melde? Wie gesagt, es gibt mittlerweile mehrere freie Bilder, da finde ich schwer zu begründen, wir bräuchten ausgerechnet dieses... Viele Grüße, Ibn Battuta 06:05, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Image:BrickWall.jpg[edit]

Do you maybe have a larger version of that for commons?
If you have another one please tell me on my commons page
Thanks --D-Kuru 01:13, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

I see that there is another picture available on the english wikipedia which is bigger.
If you fell like you can upload it. If not, please tell me so that I can do it instead.
--D-Kuru 01:16, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
The resolution of that image is still to small :-(
Do you have a version with a higher resolution for commons?

New WP:TOJO sockpuppet candidates[edit]

A number of odd, Tojo-like edits have been showing-up as parkinsonism again. While I've seen Tojoism in action before, this is the first time I've ever dealt with it directly. Would you mind giving me your opinion on the (all brief) edit histories of the following users and whether you agree with my suspicion that they're Tojo socks?

Thanks much. -- MarcoTolo 19:55, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

deleted "Image:Film reel and film.jpg"[edit]

deleted "Image:Film reel and film.jpg" (moved to commons) ... Sounds good, but I don't think you caught all the places it was linked from. Can you remind me of the proper code for it (I don't have my notes with me), and I'll try to take care of fixes on teh Film portal project? Thanks..... David Spalding (  ) 22:07, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Salt Satyagraha.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Salt Satyagraha.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Bkell (talk) 22:06, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Mushiki[edit]

Hi Chris, do you know if the sides of a Mushiki are also made from bamboo? It looks more like some kind of bark; at any rate, the linear markings seem unlike any part of the bamboo plant that comes to mind. Unless it be the 'bark' of a very large bamboo, ironed flat ... ? And do you know what the Chinese equivalent of the mushiki is called? Thanks, Jayen466 17:50, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

IHO did Not decide to only sea of japan use[edit]

Vandalism notice[edit]

A user has been repeatedly changing the Sea of Japan image from using internationally-accepted naming to using the naming advocated by South Korea. Please restore it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Okurisama (talkcontribs) 03:13, 22 September 2008 (UTC)


  • about sea of japan/east sea edit.

the Ninth Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names elected to retain the title of the body of water as "Sea of Japan". <<?

actually, iho chief said,
"I encourage the three countries concerned to find a solution acceptable to all of them, taking into account any relevant solutions, or else to agree to differ and to report the outcome of these discussions to the next conference."
IHO did not decide to only 'sea of japan' naming use.
The IHO declined the name use both "East Sea" and "Sea of Japan". They did not decide to only sea of japan name use.
1. IHO cheif said, "these discussions to the next conference."
2. Previous IHO's map delete that only "sea of japan" name use.
3. The latest meeting of the International Hydrographic Organization ended without any changes, but South Korea is happy because the head of the organization suggested the moniker “Sea of Japan” be deleted from the world’s oceanographic maps until an agreement on the disputed name can be reached.[3]
4. so, IHO did not decide to exclusively "sea of japan" name use.
According to IHO's technical resolution,
It is recommended that where two or more countries share a given geographical feature (such as, for example, a bay, strait, channel or archipelago) under a different name form, they should endeavour to reach agreement on fixing a single name for the feature concerned. If they have different official languages and cannot agree on a common name form, it is recommended that the name forms of each of the languages in question should be accepted for charts and publications unless technical reasons prevent this practice on small scale charts. e.g. English Channel/La Manche. [4] [5]
so, exclusively 'sea of japan name use' did not permited. "Sea of japan/ East sea"(same use) is right.
I correct from JPOV edit. also, i already discussed in this page.[6]Panelequal3 05:12, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Check the wikipedia Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Korean)[edit]

Check the Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Korean). According to Wikipedia naming convention,

Per the vote that took place from 18 July 2005 to 8 August 2005 here, this is the new naming convention for the body of water that separates Japan and Korea:

  1. For all international articles use: [[Sea of Japan]]
  2. For all Japan articles use: [[Sea of Japan]]
  3. For all Japan/Korea and South Korea articles use: [[Sea of Japan]] (East Sea)
  4. For all Japan/North Korea articles use: [[Sea of Japan]] (East Sea of Korea)
  5. For all Korea and South Korea articles use: [[Sea of Japan]] (East Sea)
  6. For all North Korea articles use: [[Sea of Japan]] (East Sea of Korea)

Per the conditions of the vote, use (East Sea) only once at the first mention.

so, Sea of Japan (East Sea) is right.

admin, you must check first WP:NVPanelequal3 09:54, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

This is an international article. Hence Sea of Japan. -- Chris 73 | Talk 09:59, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Yet another General Tojo sock?[edit]

Blocked in error[edit]

Chris, I blocked you for a couple of minutes completely in error. I was blocking socks based on a report at WP:ANI and I had a tab open with your account on it for some reason.

Photo use[edit]

I want to use a photo of yours on a protest sign. The photo says, "u can use this image freely for any purpose, including commercial use, provided that you license it under one of the above licenses. My suggestion is to use the following text: This Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons image is from the user Chris 73 and is freely available at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Whale_meat_on_dish.jpg under the creative commons cc-by-sa 2.5 license." What does this mean? It seems to mean I have to put these words on the photo, which is about the same as saying I can't use the photo as a photo. Is this correct? I'm not trying to license the phote. I tried to understand GNU Free Document License but it does not seem to apply to photos. The Creative Commons seems to be about commercial use only. I looked for this information on Wikipedia but could not find it. Thanks for the help. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.225.2.17 (talk) 05:43, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

What or how do you want to use the photo? The text usually goes e.g. in the subtitle or the credits, but this depends on how the photo is used. The CC license in this case also allows for commercial use (otherwise it would say "NC" for non-commercial) -- Chris 73 | Talk 09:39, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
I want to use it on a save the whales protest sign. Not an article, or caption, or subtitled movie, or with credits, it's a protest sign-I wouldn't have to protest if whales or the poor or the innocent had voices and words. The point of a photograph at times is to convey 1000 different words-which this photo does. If I add text people will ignore the image and focus on the words. Watch people at an art gallery or a museum some time-they spend more time on the words and lose the image. Is it possible to use this image as an image, without words?
Technically, you would have to have a small print at the bottom of the poster with the credits. That does not have to be on the photo. You could also put it on the back of the poster. However, realistically, I don't think anybody would mind or care about the particular license. I added the license so others don't use the images commercially without continuing to share the photo, and have no problem with you using it on the poster. So go ahead and just use the picture. BTW, which pic are you interested in? -- Chris 73 | Talk 08:35, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
Thank you, your permission is sufficient. No one would mind or even notice except for me as I'm an artist and you might for the same reason. The whale meat. It's linked above.
You're welcome. Also, if you're interested - the whale meat tasted really bad. All the white stuff is fat and grease from the blubber, and only the red part is actually meat, and even that was not very nice. I have no interest in eating that stuff ever again. Best wishes, -- Chris 73 | Talk 12:26, 1 December 2007 (UTC)


Sandbox[edit]

RE: This is the last warning you will receive for your disruptive edits. The next time you vandalize Wikipedia, as you did to Template:Welcome-personal, you will be blocked from editing. Chris 73 | Talk 20:03, 27 December 2007 (UTC) : The edit appears to have been erroneous since I was directed there as a link to the sandbox. Hence why someone else had also made an edit on there, which was also deleted. It was a vandalism edit, as you can see, simply placed there under the impression I was on the Sandbox page.

Photo Use[edit]

Hello,

I am the general editor of the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentary: Old Testament, a five volume academic reference series on the backgrounds to the Bible. One of my responsibilities is to gather photos for the project. I encountered your photo on Wikimedia Commons "Snake Goddess Crete" and even though it is licensed under Creative Commons cc-by-sa 2.5, my publisher would like me to request your written permission to use it in my book outside the restrictions of that licensing. I would need non-exclusive world rights in all languages for both print and digital formats. You will be given credit in the work for your photo as Chris 73 unless you would like the credit to read differently. Thank you. John H. Walton —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jkwalton5 (talkcontribs) 03:56, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi. I would prefer to keep the license as is. The only difference for you is that in the credits you would have to mention the CC-BY-SA license. This license allows free commercial use, so it does not cost you any more, you only have to add a few words to the credit. Maybe your publisher misunderstood the license term, please check. Cheers, -- Chris 73 | Talk 07:23, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Permission request for photo[edit]

Notwithstanding the disclaimer accompanying the graphic, my editors have requested that I contact you for explicit permission--as well as any other instructions you might have about how to credit the picture (and to be honest, it is not at all clear to me what your relationship is to the photo).

Thanks for your assistance,

Kabuki actor photos[edit]

Hi Chris. I just found your photos of Danjuro, Ebizo, and other current kabuki stars, over on the Commons. I'd like to use them in the appropriate Wikipedia articles, but there's no information provided to be used for a good caption. When were these taken? Where? What sort of event was it? Is there anything else notable or interesting to know about the context of the photos?

Permission to use Advertisement from Edo Period (Urgent!)[edit]

Hi Chris,

I like you have lived in numerous places throughout the world and have a particular love for Japan, hence my SN.

I would really like to you your image on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advertising the one of the advertisement from the Edo period. I read the license agreement but am a bit confused. I would like to use this image in a brochure that will be distributed for non-commercial purposes through my work. But we are a non-profit organisation and I would just like to make sure that I stay clear of any issues, would you please get back to me when you get a chance? My deadline is tonight and I can't find any other photos that fit in with the argument so perfectly.

Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kobe83 (talkcontribs) 14:57, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi. No problem. Just add the text This Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons image is from the user Chris 73 and is freely available at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Edo_period_advertising_in_Japan.jpg under the creative commons cc-by-sa 2.5 license. somewhere on the brochure. Can be small print. If you don't have enough space on the brochure, you can shorten the text if necessary, as long as Wikipedia and the CC-By-Sa 2.5 is mentioned. And if even that is not possible, the image is so old, it is public domain by now anyway. Just go ahead and use it. Cheers -- Chris 73 | Talk 16:08, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Great, thank you so much! Just one more thing, I don't want to be rude or anything but is that really an advertisement for medicine? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kobe83 (talkcontribs) 20:45, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Cool, I will try that but I doubt anyone will understand it since the script is in old Japanese.

I am leaving my job soon and need to make sure that I have covered all bases. If not, can we figure out something else?

Image:Model of historical imperial palace in Edo.jpg[edit]

hi there Chris 73,

I stumbled across this image of yours on the Commons [7]. Where did you see this model? And are you sure that it's the "imperial palace of Edo", or is it rather the "shogun's palace in Edo"? 1845 the Shogun was still in power. Hope to hear from you, domou.. Gryffindor 01:55, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

If i remember correctly, it was the Edo-Tokyo Museum. I thought it was the Edo Palace, but I have to check my sources again. -- Chris 73 | Talk 07:14, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Hallo, Chris, der Zweifel von Gryffindor ist berechtigt. Der "Emperor" (Mikado) residierte in Kyoto. Wenn Deine Quellen sagen: Edo Palace, dann ist mit höchster Wahrscheinlichkeit das Schloss des Shogun gemeint. Nach meiner Einschätzung (Hobby-Historiker) hätte der Mikado sich in seinem Stolz nicht dazu herabgelassen (und die kaiserlich Gesinnten hätten es ihm nicht erlaubt), in Edo einen Zweitpalast zu bauen.

Fair use rationale for Image:Omon-logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Omon-logo.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Project FMF (talk) 03:30, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Photo vom Valenciasee[edit]

Hallo, Chris. Zuerst vielen Dank für Deine Arbeit. Ich würde gern wissen, ob Du das Photo vom Valenciasee in Commons umdrehen kannst? Der Süden steht hier oben. Ich könnte das zwar selbst umdrehen, ich weiss aber nicht, welche Rechte man dann angeben muss (es ist nicht open source, nicht eigenes Werk, etc). Vielen Dank! --Periergeia (talk) 11:51, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Image:17th_Lancers_badge.jpg[edit]

I have tagged Image:17th_Lancers_badge.jpg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale. If you believe the image to be acceptable for fair use according to Wikipedia policy, please provide a rationale explaining as much, in accordance with the fair use rationale guideline, on the image description page. Some examples can be found at Wikipedia:Use rationale examples. Please also consider using {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags/Non-free. Thank you. Project FMF (talk) 13:29, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Barnstar of National Merit for Australia[edit]

Hi, Just noticed that you created that BNM for Australia.

It looks really good, well done!

Would like to point out something that you may wish to address, and please feel free to tell me to pull my head in!

When displaying the Australian Flag from the canton, by heraldic and vexillogical convention the Union Jack should be display in the first quarter, ie top-left quadrant -even though the flag appears 'back to front'.

"Flag against a surface whether horizontally of vertically:The top left quarter should be placed uppermost on the observer's left, as viewed from the front" ( The Australian National Flag Association [9])

Anyways, I'm not here to make a noise or anything. I just thought that given you've made a tremendous effort with it, that you might wish for some constructive feedback.

Orphaned non-free media (File:German Troops In Warsaw.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:German Troops In Warsaw.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box.

Oversighting GT sock's edit summaries[edit]

I think that his edit summaries on your talk page should be oversighted. Momo san Gespräch 貢献 21:49, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi Momusufan, thanks for the comments on Tojo. I'd rather not have my talk page protected, the vandalism is not really a major bother to me. Plus, my talk page is not that much frequented. As for the edit summaries, I don't mind these either. Anybody with two brain cells looking at it will know who's the real moron in these edits. Oversighting them would be a lot of work, since these kind of edit summaries are also found on a number of other pages, where Tojo reverts my edits. Overall, no action is needed except to let the filter do it's job, as you put it. Nevertheless I definitely appreciate your concern and help. Keep up the good work! -- Chris 73 | Talk 21:57, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: Rationale for move[edit]

Hi, I'll explain why. The most common name is Diaoyutai Islands (as shown in Google search, outstripping Senkaku Islands by more than a quarter). I flipped through the archives and revealed that the last time such discussion took place 2 years ago, and may not reflect that consensus can change. That's why I have tried to get people to comment on it, but nobody said anything after 2 weeks and even the archive bot came around to archive it before I moved it.[10] This surprised me because I don't know why not much interest is generated this time. OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:38, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

No worries, we'll give it a few days and see. And as a heads-up, I will be camping this weekend (Friday to Sunday) so if you don't see me around, it's not because I'm trying to find a place to hide and avoid the discussion ;) Take care, OhanaUnitedTalk page 19:52, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

I don't think this is the swim hall[edit]

I believe that your photo (Yoyogi National Gymnasium - Swim.jpg) is actually the smaller of the two buildings comprising the Yoyogi National Gymnasium, the picture having been taken from outside the original swim hall (looking roughly South West). As far as I remember (and have been able to verify so far) the larger was the one that housed the swimming at the 1964 Olympics, and this one housed gymnastics. You can see the interior of the larger hall in this You Tube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj-N0BGoLmo&feature=player_embedded#) and you can see the floor layouts just a bit in this archtectural article (http://www.greatbuildings.com/buildings/Olympic_Arena.html). Neither building seems to be used for swimming now (though my sources aren't very good on this), and the venue was not on the 2016 Olympic bit venue list for swimming. I am still looking for better documentation on this, but am planning to add this photo to a Gallery in "1964 Summern Olympics", as well as the "Yoyogi National Gynmnasium" article (which discusses only the larger building as though it's the whole thing). Perhaps this photo should be renamed. I can't verify right now (I keep getting SNAFU messages) if this is used anywhere other than in your gallery. Donlammers (talk) 20:03, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes, we're all pretty aware of the spammer's infatuation with children. I'm scared to think of why his mind goes to child abuse so quickly.

Talk page spam[edit]

Hi!

Thank you for informing us about a cross-wiki spammer. However, spamming the same message on different talk pages was a bad idea, I believe you should have known it. Please use a better venue next time (like local sysops' noticeboard). Thanks. vvvt 12:21, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

WP:CANVASS is completely different and you should know that. WP:CANVASS is about alerting people of discussions and where the discussions could be unfairly swayed in one direction, or too many people are contacted directly on their talk page. None of those apply here. Chris 73's notice is for very long-term cross-wiki spammer, m:Keith Bridgeman AKA General Tojo (talk · contribs), not a discussion; it's helpful to every non-banned user, not just one side of a discussion; and it's only on three or fewer talk pages per wiki, not user talk. You and another ru.wp editor, Ghirlandajo (talk · contribs), are seeing this completely wrong, and you're the only two that have complained. Wknight94 talk 12:47, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the comment. For many articles, there is a group of editors that take care of this particular article (reasons being personal interest etc). My goal was to alert these editors about the commercial cross-wiki spamming of their articles, something that they won't notice if i write it on a noticeboard somewhere else.(Note: commercial in a sense that Keith Bridgeman is trying to make money by ripping off dead authors, but judging from the Amazon sales ranking his work sells very slow and I believe so far his costs by far outweigh the income :) Hence I believe that the minor inconvenience of adding the note to three articles per wiki is acceptable.

Source for japanese female urinals?[edit]

I noticed that the material you added to the article Toilets in Japan has been taken down. I was going to reinstate it, but it is unsourced. Do you remember what your source was for this edit? Thanks. EdgeOfEpsilon (talk) 09:49, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Chris73:

The title for an image you kindly uploaded to the commons is incorrect. I would change it, but unfortunately i do not know how. If you'd be interested, please visit the image's discussion page where I noted the correct title.


Request permission[edit]

Hi Chris 73,

I'm a SF Bay Area artist, and I'm working on a small, self-published coloring book of images of the divine feminine from around the world. As I cannot afford to travel to Crete, I must rely on photographs of this figurine to create my derivative image, or not include her in the book. I would love to use your photo of the Minoan Snake Goddess to help create my illustration, and would like to give you attribution (and using your full name would be great). However, since I will have to publish the book myself, I do plan to sell the book for a modest fee, and copyright the finished illustrations and text.

I am writing to ask for your permission to create a derivative illustration from your photograph for the use in my project, and I would be pleased to attribute the source photo to you.

Thank you in advance, Retrograde Raven (talk) 22:51, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Chris 73,

I am writing to ask permission to use the file: Monkey Fist How To.JPG. We should like to use it in our company newsletter, which is printed and sent out to all our clients worldwide - we are a marine insurance company. The text suggested for crediting photos is rather lengthy: "This Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons image is from the user Chris 73 and is freely available at http://commons.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Edo_period_advertising_in_Japan.jpg under the creative commons cc-by-sa 2.5 license." Would it be sufficient to state the following instead:

"Source: Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Monkey_Fist_HowTo.jpg".

Thank you in advance.

File permission problem with File:Waiter's Corkscrew.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading File:Waiter's Corkscrew.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file agreed to license it under the given license.

If you created this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

File:Barlach Magdeburger Ehrenmal.jpg[edit]

Hi Chris 73,
coming over from Commons. Is it correct that File:Barlach Magdeburger Ehrenmal.jpg was originally uploaded by you? If yes, did you originally shoot this image or was it taken from somewhere? No offense meant, but that question is critical, as PD-Art on Commons does not cover 3d pieces. --Túrelio (talk) 10:27, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, he took this image himself. Please see File talk:Barlach Magdeburger Ehrenmal.jpg; it's also mentioned here in the deleted history. Also see the deleted revisions at the commons; in particular [12]. The sculpture is clearly PD by now in Germany. So, unless Chris objects we could even upload the larger photo he originally uploaded (1011×1469px), which is still available in the deleted history here at en-WP. Lupo 10:51, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Great. Best would be if Chris, who has an account on Commons, could upload the higher-res version by himself, as a new version over the existing low-res one. --Túrelio (talk) 11:15, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:Montagsdemonstration in Leipzig.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Montagsdemonstration in Leipzig.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page.

Nautilus Cutaway[edit]

Hi Chris, I really like your image of the nautilus shell, it is beautiful. I would like to use the picture on my company website for a page with minimal text. Do you require that the attribution text is shown in close proximity to the image, or can it be elsewhere? For example, could the text be contained in a tool-tip when users hover on the image, or could it be included in a block of "small print" at the base of the page? I could also have the image link straight to the article at Wikipedia if that would be sufficient - it's really just having large blocks of text displayed near the image that I want to get away from. A final option would be a completely separate page on the site, available through the main navigation menu, that contained image credits.

Please let me know which of the above approaches is acceptable.

Many thanks. Si c80 (talk) 02:03, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear Chris 73,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.


So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.


Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at obar@msu.edu (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at obar@msu.edu. I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

Sincerely,

Photo Request[edit]

Hello, I'm a member of VANK(Voluntary Agency Network of Korea) who rectifies the errors in Korean history. Recently I visited your website and found this page;동해. The second map in this pageImage:Japan sea map.png points the sea between Korea and Japan as 'Sea of Japan(East Sea)'.

However, these names should be corrected. Using an improper name for 'East Sea' brings to mind Japanese imperialism and unfairness to Korea. It is an absolutely mistaken thing to hear one side of story and follow. If we let this kind of things alone, it brings about a serious problem to disturb order of International society.

Accordingly, I urge you to use only 'East Sea' to describe the body of water in question or both Korean and Japanese designation simultaneously. (e.g. 'East Sea/Sea of Japan')

I inserted hyperlinks about East Sea below this talk. Please click them and read the articles.

I hope the error in this map could be corrected as soon as possible. Thank you.

*How to name the sea (Especially the sea between Korea and Japan)http://korea.prkorea.com/wordpress/english/2012/03/13/how-to-name-the-sea/

You're certainly welcome to your opinion. Wikipedia, however, decides the names of places based on the name most commonly used in English. In fact, the name "Sea of Japan" is actually written right into our guidelines because of past disputes on this issue; you can read those at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (Korean)#Sea of Japan (East Sea). Also, we have an interesting article on the subject at Sea of Japan naming dispute; if you have any new sources that might be beneficial in further filling out the dispute, please discuss them on that article's talk page. -- Chris 73 | Talk 16:21, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

Did you take this photo in the city of Nara or in Nara Prefecture?[edit]

Hello, Chris.

I'm planning to use this image of yours:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Making_mochi_with_an_Usu_and_Kine.jpg

It will go in an essay on the kanji 臼, which I'll post on my website (www.joyokanji.com) this coming Friday.

The photo caption includes this text: This Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons image is freely available at under the creative commons cc-by-sa 2.5 license.

And I've credited the photo to Chris 73 with a link to your Chris 73 page.

My question: Did you take this photo in the city of Nara or in Nara Prefecture?

Btw, I'm happy to send you a copy of the essay if you like. Just let me know how to get it to you. It'll be in PDF form.

Thanks very much!

Image permission[edit]

Hi Chris, regarding the images above, can you please take a look at Wikipedia:CONSENT and follow the instructions on how to provide proof that the original author of the photographs gave you permission for them to be released under a free licence? If you have the original emails from 2004, you might want to try sending them first to see if someone on OTRS accepts them as permission. If the wording isn't right though, you might need to contact the photographer again. Let me know if you have any queries. Thanks SmartSE (talk) 17:54, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Bathroom humor[edit]

Greetings Chris 73. I was curious if you knew where I could find data regarding the following bit of Wikipedian history that revolved around the article Toilets in Japan. At its creation by you the article included a statement to the effect that there were suggestions that the water jet was used as an aid to female masturbation. That statement lay undisturbed (and was included in the article when that article gained "Featured article" status) until about 2006, when it caught the scandalized eye of an unregistered editor from the UK who removed it because "there were no references" to the claim or something to that effect. Some years later somebody included a similar statement, this time mentioning "sexual stimulation" instead of "masturbation", and this time the article was sourced to a Mainichi Shimbun article, or blog, or something. Again the statement caught the eye of some scandalized Japanese Wikipedians one of whom removed it with the edit summary that "it wasn't true" (not an exact quote). And now comes the comical part of the story: one or several editors who tried to revert that removal on the grounds that the claim was sourced ended up being blocked, banned, I don't know, and the Japanese censors won the day. Currently the article contains no such statement. Did you follow that saga? Or were you by then working on other things, had lost interest in the article and did not pay attention to what became of it. I've tried to piece out what happened from that article's revision history but it's not that easy. I'm asking all this because on my user page I plan to have some anecdotes regarding Wikipedian history and I'd like to find more facts about a story that would be a killer anecdote. As you can see I've got the title of that anecdote all ready. Cheers. Signed: Basemetal (write to me here) 23:14, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi Basemetal,first of all I am honored that you feel my article worthy for inclusion in your anecdotes. Definitely let me know what came out of that. As for the statement, i first added it when I wrote the article (which, by the way, was one of the quickest articles ever to gain feature status, only coconut crab (also by me) was faster, methinks. When I added it i was fully aware that a lot of people will find the idea of masturbating with a toilet revolting. But then, when you talk with emergency room doctors you will find out that they have to deal on a daily basis with surgically removing "masturbation aids" out of somebody's rectum or elsewhere (from lubricated rodents to mobile phones). Hence I added the info anyway, since Wikipedia should not care if the information is likeable, only if it is true. On that respect, my source was also rather weak, the equivalent of the british "yellow press". But since then others brought up many more sources, albeit none of them "scientific". Unfortunately, due to demands in my real life I did not have the time to follow this problem up close, and only acted if people wanted to remove the whole article from feature status on the grounds of yuckiness. It was eventually removed due to lack of citations, which i did not have the time to fix (again - real life demands). Hope this info helps. Also, if you are looking for lore, you can also go into the "Gdansk" vs. "Danzig" conflict, including edit wars with behind the scenes email collaboration to push the polish name. Cheers -- Chris 73 | Talk 09:06, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I'll definitely keep you posted. Was your source you call weak an article published in the Mainichi Daily News, an English publication of the Mainichi Shimbun? Or is this from later than 2004? The "article" (or "blog entry"?) here appears to criticize the original article for wilful mistranslation. As usual, the claim is that "Japanese people would never do such a thing" etc. Signed: Basemetal (write to me here) 00:45, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Soda Lime.jpg[edit]

Could you explain your deletion of this file? It says that you deleted this as redundant to a different file in the same file format, but you also wrote that it was redundant to a vector file, and vector files can't be in the same file format as a JPG file, so it seems that the file didn't satisfy the criteria for WP:CSD#F1 in the first place. --Stefan2 (talk) 18:58, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi. The SVG image is in my view higher quality, even though it is not a 100% identical representation. Hence I deleted it. However, if you want the file back I do not have a problem with it either. Just let me know. -- Chris 73 | Talk 05:56, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if it is in higher quality or not. As long as it isn't pixel-to-pixel identical (or reduced resolution) and in the same file format, then you can't delete it as F1. --Stefan2 (talk) 09:53, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

I work on several Wikipedias and inadvertantly forgot to log off before making a message at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard This User is making a big thing out of it - I think he thinks he has a vandal. I have tried to explain. Evidently he is the only user on Wikipedia that never forgot to log in or log out or was bumped off. He has now exposed my IP to everyone. At least I think it is my IP. I really do not know and would have to deliberately log out to know. He has only been on Wiki for one year and I will give him the benefit of the doubt that it is his mistake in answering in that tone and in that place.
